This volume presents recent work on Maya iconography from practitioners in a variety of fields: archaeology, anthropology, art history, linguistics, astronomy, photography, and medicine. The time period discussed runs from the last centuries B.C. through the great Maya Classic period, with some discussion of later eras and of regions outside the Maya area. The papers are placed in an order that most clearly brings out the emerging themes: the book shows how certain Maya beliefs grew over time, and for the first time makes connections between Preclassic and Classic iconography.

The contributors are John Carlson, Michael Coe, David Freidel, Donald Hales, Norman Hammond, Nicholas Hellmuth, John Justeson, Barbara Kerr, Justin Kerr, Mary Ellen Miller, William Norman, Lee Parsons, Francis Robicsek, Linda Schele, David Stuart, and Karl Taube. The book includes an introduction by the editors.
